This song was released as the follow-up to pop/R&B singer-songwriter Kristinia DeBarge's breakthrough hit single "Goodbye." It was a double a-side along with "Sabotage."
OneRepublic frontman Ryan Tedder and Evan "Kidd" Bogart, the son of Casablanca Records founder Neil Bogart, wrote the song. The duo previously penned together "Halo" for Beyoncé.
This song was previously recorded by American boy band Varsity Fanclub in 2008. It was intended to be their first single from their self-titled debut album until its release plans were shelved.
This track was taken from Kristinia's debut album Exposed. She told MTV News that despite its eye-catching title, the true meaning is a lot less suggestive: "I chose that title because I felt that it's me introducing myself to the world," she said. "So I wanna make sure people get to know Kristinia."
Ronnie Van Zant wrote the Lynyrd Skynyrd classic "Gimme Three Steps" after making the mistake of dancing with a girl whose boyfriend was in the bar and probably had a gun. He asked for a 3-step head start.
